Young Lungs at Play: Keeping parks tobacco-free

Pennsylvania Health Ed

The job of the American Lung Association in Pennsylvania is to urge municipalities to sign up for the Young Lungs at Play program by creating new ordinances or strengthening current tobacco-free policies already in place. We’ve successfully worked with a total of 30 municipalities that have joined YLAP in the South Central region since October 2013. An additional 17 municipalities have joined on July 2015 in the Northeast and North Central regions. The American Lung Association in Pennsylvania covers the Southcentral, Northcentral and Northeast regions, which include 35 out of 67 counties in PA. The funding for this project came from being the Regional Primary Contractor in the North Central region for the Tobacco Control Grant with the PA Department of Health.
